This term came about through a very popular cartoon of a helmet topping off a pair of boots to signify the veteran with just a short time left in his enlistment and keeping a REALLY low profile, turtle-like, trying to make it out alive. Among VietNam and older veterans a challenge term by which infantrymen recognized each other.

When a veteran infantryman would meet another veteran, the question would be asked: "Are you a turtle?". To which the challenged veteran would have to either reply "You bet your sweet ass I am!" or have to buy the challenging veteran a drink.
Army veteran: "Are you a turtle?"

Marine veteran: "You bet your sweet ass I am".

a breaker move like the cricket except instead of bouncing from hand to hand you have your elbows in your gut and your spining in a circle by slightly raising your hand shifting if and puting it back down. keep dooing this from hand to hand until you've gone around in a complete cirle
turtles are easy to do as long as you can hold the freeze.

may come in the form of a complusive lier, usually resides in the tri state area, also enjoys spending its time riding small hard objects that are from its own family blood lines, plans are not its strong point and will dodge any form of communication followed up by a poor excuse, that usually equates to "tonite the turtle was captivated by his father in the bed room and willing and openly proformed sexual acts while getting the utmost enjoyment from it"
